Turn Back Time

Having a conversation with Oldest about her birthday. Which isn’t until October, but she likes to talk about it.

Oldest: Can’t believe I will be 12 on my Birthday!

Me: No you won’t.

Oldest: Yes I will. I am 11 now, then 12, then 13, then 14…

Me: Nope you will be 8 this year. I liked it when you were 8. You were nice.

Her dad walks in and hears us talking and says, “Let’s make it 7, 7 was a good age.”

Me: Ok, 7 it is.

Oldest: You can’t do that. I don’t want to be 7 or 8.

Me: Why not. You were nice and little still. You were mommy’s helper.

Oldest: *Getting mad at me now* I am going to be 12 and you can’t stop me.

*Oh dear one, I know I can’t. If I could, I would. I would turn it all around, in a heartbeat.*

 

A Good Day

Today so far, has been a good day. The sun is up, the sky is blue and Little L woke up in a good mood. Now here in the desert, the sky is always blue and that sun is always shining, but that good mood part has been far and few.

L has been rather a Grumpy Greta, a Moody Mona, a Bratty Brenda you could say the past several days. Waking up demanding the t v on. Not being happy with the choices, then wanting food but not eating. Whining all day. Skipping her nap Tuesday, made for a long day, she tried to fight it yesterday, but I won. 

She has been playing this morning, laughing and being silly. Now she is happily watching Umi Zoomi and eating a grape popsicle.  Hoping this mood stays with her for awhile.

Happy Thursday everyone. 🙂
